Angela and Yuval are NYC-based yoga instructors and teacher trainers. Both are E-RYT 500, YogaWorks Certified and lead retreats and teacher trainings all over the world.  Known for smart, mindful, fluid sequencing with clear instructions of alignment, breath awareness and core stabilization throughout each practice.  You, as the participant, will have space to self-explore your body and your mind. As Angela and Yuval are both reiki masters, healing is an integrated part of most sessions.

On her mat, Angela feels she can be the most honest and true version of herself!  As we continually seek, question, explore and unfold through the practice, she encourages herself and students to look beyond the physical and take the yoga state of being off the mat and into their life.

Testimonials - 

"Angela and Yuval created a fun and supportive yoga community that helped me relax and recharge. I simply loved the tag team teaching they offered each day. It was like attending a mini teacher training because they broke down each pose which allowed me to build and strengthen my practice. Highly recommend this dynamic duo"! ~ Toya

"I had the absolute pleasure of joining Angela and Yuval in CR this past winter for a week of yogic happiness. A complete cocktail of body, mind and spiritual healing. Together, they have a natural way of sharing a unique package of heartfelt genuineness, humor, form and flow. Along with yoga, a few adventurous activities and carving out your own time, you are sure to have plenty of laughs and perhaps a few yummy tears". ~ Tara

"You are both VERY good teachers, and I'm picky!" ~ Karen
